Europe / a journey in 28 paintings – one of each country
-Video made for the ZomerExpo 2019 in museum De Fundatie / Zwolle NL.
-Selected out of 2300 artworks
Under the exhibition title 'Europe' we ask artists to make work that shows the diversity of the visual arts on this continent.
explanation of the artwork
The artwork is a reference to the Greek myth of Europe, the young Phoenician woman who was abducted on the back of Zeus as a white bull to the beaches of Crete.
Interesting that a female character has been made of the continent of Europe.
I have given the continent a face by choosing a portrait of a strong woman from every country in the EU.
By fixing the eyes I let the viewer look into the soul of Europe, a continent with a very rich cultural heritage.
